Stay up to date on developments with deepstreamHub

deepstream 3.0 is here!

Lately, I almost got worried. Whenever I looked around our office in Berlin I saw this strange combination of exhaustion and focus that so often precedes a major milestone in development.

An overview of realtime protocols

Want to send a request to a server and get a response back? Use HTTP! Simple as that. But when it comes to managing communication via persistent, bi-directional connections, e.g. WebSockets or TCP you’re looking at one heck of a choice.

HTTP is coming to deepstreamHub

HTTP is coming to deepstreamHub! Our upcoming HTTP API will allow any HTTP capable programming language or device (so pretty much everything) to read, write and delete records, send events or make RPCs using a simple JSON format.

deepstream 2.0 outperforms socket.io by more than x 1000

Realtime is growing fast. From collaborative edits in Google Docs, chatting on Slack or auto-synced Trello cards to fully fledged trading platforms, multiplayer games or smart home controls, more and more apps are using bi-directional connections and streaming updates to deliver data as soon as it becomes available.

Making the most of Web Summit

One rainy day we ventured across land, air and sea to the Portuguese capital of Lisbon, for the monstrous ‘techsperience’ they call Web Summit - where we basked in the sunshine and rubbed shoulders with the likes of Microsoft, Facebook and the odd escapee from Hollywood.

The dynamics of open source communities

For months now deepstream.io has been navigating the rough waters of open source - and to some extent successfully so. As a long-term PR professional but first time dabbler in open source community management I'd love to share what I learned along the way.

How we used deepstream to build a lightning fast realtime trading platform

When we started, we were a small team of investment banking and trading technologists with an ambitious goal: we wanted to build the best trading platform there was; fast, responsive, with a multitude of tools, clever workflows based on multi component linking, browser and mobile support, easily accessible, themeable and so on...

Re: Re: Fwd: Briteback

What have you’ve been doing at work today? Your actual work? Or sifting through an endless stream of emails, both from externals and co-workers alike that wanted to discuss - well - even more incoming emails they’ve received.

Load Balancing Websocket Connections

Loadbalancing for Websockets sucks. But I guess we can't complain. HTTP has been around for 27 years and we had plenty of time to develop a mature infrastructure to handle traffic for even the biggest websites.

An overview of realtime libraries and frameworks

Time to build a realtime app. Whether it's just a few notification popups or a fully synchronized collaboration app, you’re probably doing the right thing - users have come to expect to see changes happen when they happen - not just once the page is refreshed.

Using PassportJS for Facebook and Twitter oAuth

Let's face it, we each have multiple user profiles and maintaining all those different passwords just never worked. So when OAuth got introduced we let out a sigh of relief knowing those days are behind us. Behold, the second sigh, where deepstream can use the same OAuth-tokens to authenticate your users!

deepstreamHub raises $1 Million seed round to turn realtime into a platform

Ever since we started working on deepstream.io, our open source realtime server, we’ve felt that it could be the foundation for something bigger: a platform that enables developers of all backgrounds to build stunning realtime apps. A platform that connects to a wealth of tools, services and third party systems. A platform called deepstreamHub.

Deepstream Microservices

Not too long ago, this post would have started with a flaming manifesto for microservices. “Break down the monolith!”, “Divide and Conquer!”… you know the drill. Today though, that’s hardly necessary. In fact, cloud platforms like AWS make it next to impossible NOT to architect your backend as a swarm of loosely coupled processes.

The benefits of listening

Realtime systems have a reputation of being expensive to run. Lets take a look at why - and what we can do to make it better. But before we start, let’s take a quick look at how many realtime systems work today.

What is realtime?

As the guys behind deepstream.io we spent an awful lot of time at conferences and meetups with cool names like up.front, 12min.me or HackNTell. And we talk to an awful lot of people. What do we talk about? You’ve guessed it: Realtime technologies.

The unsexy IoT

A few years ago, when the first Rasperry Pi’s hit the scene, I was working at a tech company building trading apps. Like so many, the company had a strong focus on engineering with about 70 developers pitted against just 4 designers.

Publishing AWS SNS messages to browsers

ending the same message to Smartphones, Email inboxes and VoIP clients on an Amazon scale? Sounds great! And that’s exactly what AWS’ Simple Notification Service lets you do. It’s a realtime-pub-sub-hub that lets you fan out the same data to AWS services like SQS or Lambda as well as to a wide range of connected devices.
